TOUR MY CREATIVE SPACE

"WELCOME TO MY CREATIVE SPACE"
I would like to thank Karen Valentine at My Desert Cottage
for hosting this event.
Head on over to Karen's blog where you will find a very long list of other bloggers that have signed up. Visit some of these great spaces, I am sure you won't be disappointed.
Come into my creative space, make yourself at home..
If you follow my blog you would know that I love a great swap.
This is a basket of my swap gifts.
This is my love, Willy Wonka Pea Doodle.
Willy is at the Rainbow Bridge having the time of his life. I am a hoarder of vintage lace and trims. I can't help myself, I don't know what the obsession is really, I just love it, and that's just it!!
I truly love my creative space.
I love to just sit and look at all of my trinkets and pictures and lace, to be in this room I feel at peace. My space is my therapy, if I needed therapy...
The picture of the two little girls was a card from my Best Friend, I finally put it in a frame today.
This photograph is of my dad.
I have used this photo many times in different pieces of art and in collages and on greeting cards.
I love the look of old books, books are great items to use in vignettes.
Told you I love lace. Vintage sewing patterns make me happy, too.
These mother and child bears are one of my most cherished things ever, Figgy gave this to me for mother's day many, many years ago. Isn't this just precious?
I love old pictures and have several hanging in different areas.
A View from the doorway.
There are three walls that are all shelves. Most of the shelves are full of boxes of creative goods, paper, books, more lace and trims, all sorts of stuff. I won't show you that, not very attractive...
Did I mention I love linens?
I have made a lot of art using linens.
I also have a love for birds.
I hope you have enjoyed my creative space and some of my favorite items.
Thanks for stopping by.
Michele
